Juvenile Rape in Turkey

Twenty six men were charged for having sex with a thirteen year old girl in Turkey. The Turkish Court made a ruling the thirteen year old girl had “willfully engaged in consensual sexual relations with the twenty six men.” The public in Turkey was outraged. This decision is truly outrageous.

The incident took place in 2002. Twenty six men were accused of having sex on multiple occasions with a thirteen year old girl. The men paid two adult women for the sexual liaisons during the period of seven months. The men were sentenced pursuant to Turkey’s lenient Penal Code regarding sex with underage juveniles. The country’s penal code was thereafter modified in 2005. The older Turkish Penal Code gave reduced sentences regarding sexual liasions between adults and children under the age of fifteen if the child consented. A women’s group spokesman, Pinar Iikkaracan in Turkey stated “in the new Turkish Penal Code there is no question of consent, that is incredibly important to us.” “In terms of girls and boys under fifteen it is very clear any violation of the body for sexual purposes is defined as sexual abuse in the new code. Which means that sexual assault or the violation of the body should have a higher sentence.”

Some of the twenty six men who had sex with the thirteen year old were acquitted, while others received jail sentences of one to four years imprisonment.

Driving Intoxicated With Children In the Car Is Neglect

=Jacquline M. drove her car with her children in it while she was intoxicated. The Department of Social Services was notified of the situation. They investigated the matter and brought a proceeding in the Family Court claiming that Jacquline’s actions amounted to neglect of her children.

The children’s father also had some problems. He did not take anti-seizure medication because he wanted to drink alcoholic beverages. He was aware his failure to take the anti-seizure medication could cause him to become violent when having a seizure.

Both parent’s actions amounted to child neglect pursuant to the Family Court. Both parents appealed the court’s decision. The Appellate Court found that both parent’s neglect was supported by the evidence.

Dissenting Opinion

One of the Appellate Judges strongly dissented from the court’s decision. The Judge stated “there were no allegations of actual harm, thus, could not conclude the agency established either parent placed the children in eminent danger of physical, emotional or mental impairment.” The Judge also stated there was not sufficient evidence to show the mother was intoxicated or that her actions put the children at risk.

Motion to Reargue

The Nassau County District Attorney’s Office brought a motion to reargue the Judge’s decision. Judge Peck reviewed the Motion but stated in the Motion’s Decision he was still convinced that the incident involving the defendant, Ryan Draper was anything other than a simple accident. District Attorney Kathleen Rice is upset with Judge Peck’s decision. She has indicated that she would appeal Judge Peck’s decision. Judge Peck stated he based his decision on the case of People vs. Montanez. A case where the court disapproved an Assistant District Attorney’s intervention in grand jury deliberations.
